The Revolving Door

“I told you we went too far,” the frustrated, auburn-haired vampire announced to her so called boyfriend. The werewolf, unable to give a vocal answer because he was currently shifted, merely gnarled in response. They were lost in the middle of the woods. Carolyn had wanted to feed before returning to her sister, Emma, and Jason had decided to make a date of it since he had felt a little hungry himself. He remembered a cave in the side of the nearby mountain that was full of wild coyotes, perfect for hunting, however, he had gotten turned around a while back on their way there, causing intense annoyance to befall Carolyn as her hunger increased by the minute. She could already feel the fire starting in her throat.

She smelled a rabbit that was only a few feet away and snatched it up with her super-human speed digging her fangs into its neck. It was drained within seconds. Carolyn frowned with discontent as she licked the traces of blood the rabbit left on her lips off. It was barely enough to keep her sane. She hadn’t been able to properly feed in months because of the war, now it had all caught up to her. “If I don’t find something that will satisfy me soon, I’m going to start chomping on your neck instead of the local wildlife,” Carolyn warned her canine companion with sharp, piercing eyes.

Jason felt terrible. He knew what it was like to feel that intense hunger. Fortunately for him, he had been able to hunt regularly with his pack when he was allied with Alex’s army. He knew this forest was scarce of animals, which was why he got excited when he found the cave. Now he couldn’t remember where it was. He mentally kicked himself as he sniffed the air, searching for the scent of coyote. He thought he caught a whiff of the wild dogs and took a left, going deeper into the forest. He couldn’t even see the sky, there were so many trees covering the view.

Carolyn sensed he felt bad, but she couldn’t resist herself from complaining, she was just so hungry. She let out a deep sigh as they passed the same bush for the third time. She knew it was the same one because it was the only bush that consisted of blue flowers with red thorns protruding from its stem. She tried to help sniff out the cave with him in the beginning, but after an hour with no progress whatsoever, she had decided it was a waste of her energy.

She touched the red scarf that was carefully secured around her neck. She smiled as she recalled the memory of him presenting her with the gift. It was just after the war. He had felt terrible for what he’d done, so he decided to give Carolyn a token of his love. He went into town to find the perfect gift for her, even though he hated going into town. He never felt comfortable around normal humans. He looked through numerous shop windows, when he finally came across this scarf. It wasn’t all that special in any way, it was merely a normal, red linen scarf, but for some reason it reminded him of her. He didn’t know it, but Carolyn had been watching him. She noticed his scent in town and went to check it out. The only reason he didn’t notice her scent was because he wasn’t used to the intense scent of human within the city, which threw off every scent he knew. She had a hunch the scarf was for her, but she pretended to be surprised when he presented it to her.

Her minded snapped back into the present as she smelled a faint scent of coyote. She sprinted towards the origin of the scent, leaving Jason to catch up with her. Her hunger must have increased her sense of smell, Jason thought to himself, not being able to smell it until a little while later. They were running, side by side, deeper into the forest, narrowly missing the trees they passed. They reached the cave within minutes. Carolyn had to hold herself back from charging in there in order to assess her targets. There were fifteen coyotes altogether: seven male, four female, and four younger ones. She would go for the females first, knowing they will be more vicious than the males because they have to protect their young. “You handle the males,” Carolyn stated to the wolf that was positioned at her feet. He gave a silent nod in response.

They charged in, attacking the unsuspecting coyotes with movements that were so fluid, they were like flowing water, dancing around each other in order to confuse their opponents. The coyotes were barely able to put up a fight. They made sure to snap each coyote’s neck for a swift, painless death, before moving on to the next one. They left the puppies alone, watching them run away in fear. Jason felt a twinge of sorrow for them, but he knew they would be okay.

Carolyn immediately began sucking the first coyote dry, Jason following her lead by sinking his teeth into one next to her, ripping the flesh from its body. He could feel Carolyn’s body being warmed with the new blood coursing within her. She barely registered his presence as she started feeding on the next one. Jason knew this, he had fed with her before, but even though he can’t truly share feeding with her like he can with his pack, he still felt a sense of joy as they fed together.

Jason laid down, his head on his paws, as he watched his lover finish off draining the remaining coyotes of blood. Even though this was usually seen as an act of savagery, Jason saw Carolyn’s feeding with a sense of happiness. As he stared at her, he saw the look of intense pleasure as she fed; it was almost peaceful, not brutal or barbaric as many people claimed.

Carolyn stood up, finished with her meal. The pain in her throat had subsided, and she was finally able to walk in a human city without the fear of losing control. She had noticed Jason watching her as she fed; causing her to self-consciously wipe her face, afraid there might be blood stains. She was usually careful not to get blood on her, but when she was that hungry she couldn’t help herself. This caused Jason to grin, lighting up his canine eyes. Carolyn frowned in response, thinking he was laughing at her.

He stood up and shifted back into his human form, revealing his bronze skin and wavy, raven hair. He walked towards Carolyn. “You missed a spot,” he said as he bent down to lick a spot of blood that was left on her cheek. She gave him a daring smile.

“Oh you shouldn’t have done that,” she stated. She laid her hand on his lower back and pulled him closer to her, locking her lips with his. His scent poured into her nose, filling her with pleasure. She usually hated the smell of werewolves, they always smelled like nasty, wet dog, but for some reason she loved Jason’s scent. It was as if he wasn’t a werewolf at all.

She backed him up against the cave wall, her body still entwined with his. He gasped in pain, causing her to look up with concern. “I didn’t bite you did I?” she asked with a sorrowful look. She always keeps her fangs in check, especially when they’re having intimate moments.

He gave her a look of embarrassment as he retrieved something from behind him. He held up a sharp, jagged rock to Carolyn, giving her a small smile. “One of the downsides of being a werewolf,” Jason stated as he through the rock to the other side of the cave, “is that we don’t have clothes when we shift back.” Carolyn laughed as she switched places with him, her being the one against the cave wall. She was so used to his lack of clothes that she sometimes forgot he was naked. When she did realize it, however, her body filled with longing.  

“Now where were we?” Carolyn asked as she leaned up to receive an eager kiss.
